New Year, New Project

I am exhausted. On a whim, I decided to paint my living area and kitchen red. I’ve always wanted red walls. I think they are bold and artistic and for me it represents a creative outlook that I’m trying to indulge in my life. But, good grief does my back ache right now. I am literally standing in the midst of chaos. I’m no where close to finished, but I was able to rehang some prints in my first dry corner. It’s nice to see progress. And doesn’t Ophelia look perfect against red?

  1. How wonderful it looks! I have a real yen for red walls too, and this is very inspiring…

  2. That looks wonderful; you should be really proud of your achievement! I would have set ‘Ophelia’ against more sea-coloured walls, if that makes sense, and am very impressed with how striking she is against the red.

  3. Thank you all!
    Kathleen, the notion of setting Ophelia against watery colors is perfect. It also occurs to me that it would be an interesting idea to plant a flower bed using the flowers Ophelia talks about in Act 4, Scene 5 pf Hamlet. Hmm, new project idea?

  4. GORGEOUS! I’d do that myself — but, alas, I have no windows that let in the light in my place. I do have sliding glass doors, but there is a big overhang from the balcony above, obliterating any chance of sunlight. So red walls would make mine a cave — I’ll simply have to content myself with enjoying this lovely photo of yours.

  5. Beautiful! I’ve always wanted strong colored walls, but my otherwise beloved spouse wants white, white, white. Which is why, one day when he was at work, I painted the ceiling of one room cadet blue…it took him days to notice!

    1. Isn’t the idea of an Ophelia garden lovely? And I think it could be done on a small scale if someone didn’t have the space available.
